Research Interests:

Ling,Hefei is the Professor of Computer Science at Huazhong University of Science and Technology(HUST). His research spans multimedia, intelligence and security. He focuses on questions such as: How to efficiently and effectively search similar images or video clips from big data of multimedia? How to intelligently analyze objects and their attributes, behaviors, even events from surveillance videos? Is the content of a video or an image is harmful, legal, and authentic? Is the usage and copyright legal? His papers have been widely published in the leading scholarly journals in multimedia and security. Hefei teaches in many postgraduate and undergraduate courses including Information Hiding, fundamental of Multimedia, Multimedia Security, Computer Graphics, and Methodology of CS. Recipient of the Excellent Ph.D. Dissertation Award of HUST, Provincial Science and Technology Progress Second Prize, the Supervisor Award of Excellent Ph.D. Dissertation of Hubei Province. He is also an adjunct professor of East China University of Science and Technology.
